The belief in the absence of non-thermal effects and other similar beliefs (see the Doctrine of the innocuity of electromagnetic waves ) which is the theoretical basis for rejecting effects of electromagnetic fields on health, is no further adhered to by a majority of implied scientists. Its abandonment was validated by more than 240 scientists (see http://www.5gappeal.eu/the-5g-appeal/ ) for whom “EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines” (these guidelines only take into account thermal effects). Even the most conservative organisms now begin to take into account non-thermal effects. For example, in France the ANSES (the government agency in charge of public health) recommends to decrease children’s exposure to electromagnetic fields.
The acceptance of non-thermal effects of electromagnetic fields implies that COVID-19 issues must now be dealt with with the openness of mind which this change of perspective implies, using all available scientific knowledge, rather than only such knowledge which was found acceptable within the Doctrine of the innocuity of electromagnetic waves. In particular it is necessary to take into account the precedent of Poliomyelitis, a disease for which the historical link with exposure to electromagnetif fields is particularly straightforwward (see the Poliomyelitis page or for a more precise account https://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/hal-01148903 ). This precedent renders highly probable a connexion between the COVID-19 pandemy and exposure to electromagnetic fields.
